Doing her Sparrow thing?

So pretttty! Love it!ReplyDelete
oh this is so priceless!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you !!
What a charmer that little fellow is! I love the stretching picture. And what good taste he has!ReplyDelete
Beautiful scene, Merisi. It underlines the need all creatures have for sweet things.ReplyDelete
WHat a wonderful bird! Such personality! Such boldness! Such charm! Makes me want to paint him.ReplyDelete
Aha - you paid the bird for this photo shooting!ReplyDelete
Thank you! :-)
You are welcome! :-)
@ Vicki Lane:
I have never seen a bird stretch like that,
I agree - he was quite eager to get into the meringue! ;-)
@ The Wanderers' Daughter:
He utterly charmed me.
Are you painting yet? ;-)
Would you believe it he refused to return a second time for the crumbs a left for him? He clearly only wanted the meringue! ;-)
Typical female, eh, preening up her feathers ;-)ReplyDelete
A lovely example of a young female just completing her moult. She is probably feeling a bit itchy!
A lovely capture of bird behaviour!
Wunderschöne Bildserie mit dem Sparrow :) Dieses Ambiente, die Stühle, der Tisch und dann der passende Spatz! Ich bin hin und wegReplyDelete
How lovely and amazing!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful series of photos. I love that little sparrow. She is standing up so tall and straight (for a sparrow)! Great photos, Merisi.ReplyDelete
hahahah! great post!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for these photos - they made my day. Sparrows are my FAVOURITE bird. I really need a new photo for my blog. Would you mind if I used one of them and credited you?ReplyDelete
a sparrow... sharing your tea. lovely!ReplyDelete
I ask you, if there were beings as large as you are compared to the sparrow and they set down a piece of their pie, would you have the courage to hop up on the meringue and have a bite?ReplyDelete
It did take a lot of courage for this little sparrow to sample your pie. It must have been very hungry indeed.
Your photography is first class work.

Just superb. I clicked on all of them and though I could smell the coffee, the stretching sparrow won my heart...almost anthropomorphicReplyDelete
One could have mistaken her for a guy,
what with all that postering! ;-)
You know I stole that half hour away from it all,
thinking who knows how long that gorgeous late summer weather is going to last!
@ City Girl:
It had so much fun with this encounter! :-)
Yes, sharing my tea,
eating my meringue! Next: Asking for a ride home? ;-)
@ Abraham Lincoln:
Yes, one has to admire the courage (and the pluck!) of this little youngster!
I doubt, though, that she was very hungry, just curious: I left a few crumbs on a plate, to entice her to return, but she would have none of it! Meringue, or bust! ;-I
That little sparrow girl captured all our hearts, methinks! :-)
I left the possibility to enlarge the images. A professional photographer told me that his pictures are being stolen all the time, but he doesn't fret about it. Kind people will ask, others will steal anywhy - so there, glad you noticed and enjoyed the larger versions!
Thank you! :-)
@ Sara said...
She exhibited really intersting behavior.
Never before have I observed a bird standing on tip-toes and stretching, and so close at that! ;-)
Glad that it made you smile! ;-)
You are welcome!
I like sparrow quite a lot too! ;-)

Just one word: fantastic!ReplyDelete
What a sweet little bird! You captured such personality in this little winged friend.ReplyDelete
What precious pictures, Merisi! I know your heart was singing as you took them.ReplyDelete
Charming Merisi. I love the stretching sparrow and they are fabulous enlarged.ReplyDelete
you have a way of making this little inconsipiuous brown sparrow, a rare exotic bird - good photography, Merisi!ReplyDelete
What a lovely sparrow!ReplyDelete
Oh, what very sweet pictures! You must have been very still and patient to get those! Well done!ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog! :)
Smart sparrow. I would go for the lemon meringue also.ReplyDelete
Cheeky little creature...ReplyDelete
